BetGold is an online sportsbook and casino owned by LVC Holdings N.V. It is a relative newcomer to the gambling scene, having been established in 2019 in Curacao. It was previously branded as RioAposta before being rebranded in February 2020 and it focuses primarily on the Brazilian market. That said, players from other parts of the world are also welcome, with the website offered in English and Spanish, as well as Portuguese. The design is slick and high-quality, delivering a great experience for bettors with some nice bonuses and a good range of sports on offer.

The Sports

If you enjoy wagering on the most popular sporting events then BetGold has lots to offer. Football, basketball, tennis, boxing, golf, cricket, motor racing and snooker are all available. There are also more niche sports like esports, Aussie rules, bandy, Gaelic football, MMA and volleyball. You can even have a flutter on politics if you like something a little more obscure. The major competitions in all the sports are available, in addition to domestic Brazilian ones.

A notable absentee from the sports, however, is horse racing, which is one of the most popular sports for bettors to wager on in many countries. It may be a cultural thing for Brazil, but the absence of horse racing will be a problem for some. Nevertheless, the betting on the other sports is plentiful, with things like 1X2 bets, Asian handicaps, over/under bets and all the other popular ways to wager on your favourite events.

Live Betting

One of the most popular ways to wager in modern sports betting, it’s no surprise that live betting is available at BetGold. Whenever there are games or competitions in progress, you can click on the ‘Live Betting’ section and you’ll be able to see all the live bets available. There is a good range of live bets on offer, but no live streams of events, so you will need to find an alternative way to follow the action.

Mobile Betting

The website works flawlessly on mobile devices, so you can access the sportsbook via your browser. This is all-important for the modern gambler so bettors will be pleased to discover the mobile offering. There is no mobile app currently from the brand, but with them being such a newcomer to the market, there is plenty of potential for one to launch. In the meantime, mobile betting via your favourite browser is a seamless experience, with the website fully optimised for all devices.


When you enter the ‘Promotions’ section of the website, you will find a good range of offers under the ‘Sports Offers’ tab. Things like matched deposits, free bets and special promotions are all available, so it’s worth checking back regularly to take advantage of some excellent offers.

Overall Impression

With a wide range of payment options for deposits and withdrawals and a good selection of sports on offer, BetGold is a platform with plenty of promise for bettors. The absence of horse racing and live streaming will put some off, but the majority of patrons will enjoy the competitive odds, wide range of bet types, exciting promotions and excellent overall feel of the platform.
